AN ANALYSIS OF BANK CONSOLIDATION TRENDS IN RURAL PENNSYLVANIA AgEcon
Bae, Jeong Hwan; Shields, Martin; Stokes, Jeffrey R..
U.S. banking markets have undergone important structural and institutional changes. Overall, the sector has experienced steady consolidation through mergers and acquisitions that have resulted in fewer banks holding a greater value of the total assets. Despite consolidation, new branch offices and the growth of alternative providers has increased the access to banking-type services. This paper documents and describes trends in the banking industry in Pennsylvania, with special emphasis on rural areas. The first section shows that while the number of "“bricks and mortar”" offices in the state'’s rural counties has grown, the distribution of the growth has been quite uneven. As a result, access has potentially declined for some of the state’'s rural...

COMPARING THE IMPACTS OF RETIREE VERSUS WORKING-AGE FAMILIES ON A SMALL RURAL REGION: AN APPLICATION OF THE WISCONSIN ECONOMIC IMPACT MODELING SYSTEM AgEcon
Shields, Martin; Deller, Steven C.; Stallmann, Judith I..
The Wisconsin Economic Impact Modeling System, a conjoined input-output/econometric model of Wisconsin counties, is used to simulate the economic and fiscal impact of two alternative residential development patterns. Under the first scenario, the impact of migrating retirees on a small tri-county region in northern Wisconsin is examined. Under the second scenario, the impact of the migration of younger families with children is examined. A comparison-contrast between the two scenarios demonstrates that the characteristics of the migrating household can have a significant impact on the nature of the impacts.

Food Processors’ Use of Contracts to Purchase Agricultural Inputs: Evidence from a Pennsylvania Survey AgEcon
Jaenicke, Edward C.; Shields, Martin; Kelsey, Timothy W..
Using data from a survey of Pennsylvania food processors, we investigate what firm-level characteristics make a processor more or less likely to buy agricultural inputs and ingredients though contracts. We find that over 20 percent of Pennsylvania processors use contracts, and over 44 percent of agricultural inputs (based on value) are purchased under contract. We also analyze the two related questions of what firm attributes, attitudes, or other factors make a firm more likely to use contracts at all, and what factors lead a processor who does contract to use them more intensively.

The Growing Importance of the Environmental Horticulture Industry in the Agricultural Economy of the Northeastern United States AgEcon
Shields, Martin; Willis, Fern K..
This study examines several aspects of the Environmental Horticulture Industry (EHI) in the northeastern United States. First, the EHI is compared to other agricultural sectors in the region. The sector's growth is found to far outpace growth in traditionally important crops and commodities. The study then takes a closer look at the EHI in Pennsylvania, utilizing survey data and the IMPLAN input-output model to estimate the overall economic contributions of the industry to the state's economy. Results suggest that the EHI generates nearly $3.3 billion in value-added and more than 107,000 state jobs through direct, indirect, and induced effects. Finally, survey data are used to identify and discuss important issues that land grant universities throughout...

THE IMPACT OF THE YOUNG-OLD AND THE OLD-OLD ON A SMALL RURAL REGION: AN APPLICATION OF THE WISCONSIN ECONOMIC IMPACT MODELING SYSTEM AgEcon
Stallmann, Judith I.; Deller, Steven C.; Shields, Martin.
The literature on the economic and fiscal impacts of in-migrating retirees on rural communities concentrates on the young, newly-retired. An issue not systematically addressed are the impacts on the communities as these retirees age. The Wisconsin Economic Impact Modeling System, a county level conjoined input-output/econometrics simulation model, is used to assess the impact of an aging rural population. Using data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Expenditure Survey, profiles of two household types are constructed and used to simulate the economic impact of an additional 500 elderly households into a small rural economy. Household types vary by age and, as a result, have different income levels and expenditure patterns. As...
